Hello Mike,

I'm not the biggest poster (most of the time just lurking) but follow your blog and your page in Black & White Photography since the beggining.

Just to let you know where I am from:
Bilbao, in the Spanish Basque Country, Europe.

Keep on going. Cheers

Alfonso

Italy appears still grey, I see. I've been born in Brixen, you mentioned this little town (15000 inhabitants, 50 km from the border to Austria) some week ago in relation to Durst AG. I'm living in Bolzano (Bozen).
Til the 80ties I used an old Voigtlaender from my mother (she had it since her wedding 1942), then I used a Minox GT. 2003 the leap to digital: Oly 720UZ, then Fuji S5500 (2004) and S5600 (2006). The next camera should be the Fuji S6500 (alias S6000): the announcement of this camera (prominently its supposed excellent sensor) convinced me to postpone the leap to DSLR.
Before your TOP Blog I used to read your Meander Blog as well as your columns in Luminous Landscape (The Sunday Morning Photographer).
Have a nice day.
Hugo

OK I am on my way to Devils Lake, North Dakota. At my last look no one has responded from North Dakota. I will send you a email from my motel if it has internet connection so you can fill in the color. Otherwise, I don't know what else I can do to connect, maybe climb up a pole and tap into Western Union. Regards, Ernie

What up yo? How about some mad props for Utah?

Seriously though, it appears you have a readership that has grown significantly since you opened for business.

Congratulations.

I live in Shanghai, China (although I'm from Ireland). Until recently your blog was banned by the Chinese government and I couldn't access it. I don 't think it's personal though, I think it was all of blogger.com. I'm a huge fan of Mike's and read his articles in B&W Photography magazine regularly.

Africa looks very grey !! . . .

Mike, I have followed your writing for some time now, and visit your website weekly. I purchased the Tamron 17-35 f2.8-4 almost entirely on your recommendation!

Keep up the good work.

Hi from Rhode Island, the smallest state in the USA.

Thanks to Grant Dixon of Canada for telling about the Online Photographer.

I look at 4-5 other photo blogs, but READ only one... yours. You keep the blog fresh,up to date with what I call plain simple, easy to understand writing.

In one form or another I have been doing photography since I was 10-11. Presently I'm a "young" 71. In years I did what I call "artistic" photography. The type you would frame and hang on your walls.

But now it's all fun.. . taking pictures with a digital camera of my grandchildren. In the old days, I did my own b/w processing and printing. Tried color a few times....to much work for what I would get as a final print.

But now.. . a digital camera plus a good printer and Photoshop make the task so much easier.

G'day to you all at T.O.P.... I see Africa is grossly underepresented, so as a longtime resident of Mozambique, and avid photographer and reader of the T.O.P. website, I would like to set the record straight.. At least it will make the African Continent look a bit more represented. As a matter of interest Photography in general, and the photojournalistic style in particular, are alive and very well in Mozambique, which even though it's war-torn and socilaist years, maintained a photographic tradition. Now all the "name" photographers are approaching retirement age, and a newer breed are up and coming, embracing digital, blogging, and a more eclectic style of photography. Unfortunately computer use is still limited (though on the rise) so many portuguese speaking photographers aren't making it to you site.. Yet.
